Last Saturday morning, vinyl enthusiasts gathered outside of Mad World Records on the Square for the arrival of Record Store Day, a yearly celebration aimed at recognizing local record shops.

When the shop opened, the line filtered in and customers filed through exclusive records, discussed their personal collections and rocked out to tunes played by in-house DJs.

Some of the featured records were a new song by hip-hop duo Run the Jewels and a remix of the song “Step” by Vampire Weekend. 23_record_web2

After stopping by Mad World, many Dentonites strolled over to Recycled Books, where they took part in a 20 percent off sale on everything in the store, including records.

The Record Store Day celebrations illustrated Denton’s strong passion for local businesses.
